The new Crossrail station at Farringdon will have two ticket hall entrances: at the western end, accessed off Cowcross Street and at the eastern end at Long Lane/Lindsey Street which is adjacent to London Underground services at Barbican station.
Farringdon will be one of Britain’s busiest rail stations, linking Crossrail, Thameslink and London Underground services.
Western ticket hall
Crossrail and development partners Cardinal Lysander have obtained planning consent for an 187,000 sq ft scheme designed by architects John Robertson.
The scheme comprises:
- A mixed use development with ground floor and basement retail together with six storeys of high-quality office space, providing improved local views of St Paul’s cathedral.
- A prominent entrance to the offices from the corner of Cowcross Street and Farringdon Road.
Eastern ticket hall
Opposite the historic Smithfield Market, the second development opportunity in the Farringdon area sits above the eastern ticket hall. It is a prime opportunity for a development partner to join the project and tap into the benefits that Crossrail will bring to this part of the City of London.
- The scheme has small retail units at ground floor together with a large reception for the five floors of offices that sit above.
- The offices comprise 120,000 sq ft of virtually column-free accommodation around a central core.
- This development, designed by PLP Architecture, will create a dignified and well-proportioned backdrop to the listed Smithfield Market.
